A warm welcome to Cairo

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 5, 2004

This is a very beautiful and luxurious hotel. There are two wings the older and more luxurious side (originally the palace), and the newer, less expensive side which is where we stayed. The rooms were clean, had a good size balcony, they provide a welcome fruit basket, robes and slippers and turn down service. The food at the restaurants was delicious. The view is spectacular. The staff displayed great attention to detail and took great care that we were not overcharged for certain tourist sights.

Unique Quality: The staff at this hotel is exceptional. The hotel has wonderful views of the pyramids.

Palatial Oasis

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 12, 2004

From the moment we entered the gilded lobby of the Mena House, we felt like royalty in a truly palatial environment.

Unfortunately, our travel agent had booked us into the newer garden wing - if I were staying again I would reserve a room in the original Palace (I mean, why stay in a palace and bunk in the garden!).

The restaurants and public areas are in the main located in the palace and are opulent and spectacular.

The rooms are comfortable, clean, and welcoming.

The staff are nice, if a little officious. On the first morning we were assured at reception that residents didn't need a reservation for dinner in the main restaurant (where there is a floor show each night) - but we were bitterly disappointed that evening to be told that there were no good tables left n the restaurant!

I was disappointed in the pool area as all of the pool was deep, there was no shallow end, and thus noplace that you could wallow in the searing heat. Also, because it's located in a garden there are more flies than youmight tolerate.

Unique Quality: Wherever you go in the hotel the pyramids are visible in the public areas - both from the windows on the public rooms, and also from the gardens. It was wonderful.

Directions: Within touching distance of the pyramids.

RIGHT AT THE PYRAMIDS

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 26, 2003

I really recommend this hotel becasue is right at the pyramids of Gizah, check the picture. This luxury hotel has all the amenities, falilties and services.
Oberoi is an Indian chain it was built originally as a hunting lodge by the King of Egypt.

Unique Quality: The main building is an old palace with the best rooms and views. Then, there is another area crossing a garden (new area very simple) with rooms with view to the pyramids and other views.
For me the best experience is to swimm in the swimmingpool watching the pyramids.
It has different restaurants, not too expensive... a French with life music, an Indian with live Indian music and different restaurants for a quick bite.

Directions: Next to Gizah Pyramids

Luxoury witha Pyramid view

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 24, 2003

We'd heard that this was a fabulous hotel and we weren't disappointed.
The location is amazing, a leisurely stroll to the Great Pyramid will take all of 5 or 6 minutes and the view from the gardens, swimming pool and restaurants is wonderful.
It is an expensive place to stay, both in terms of room cost and food/drink prices (particularly by Cairo standards) however the service and ambience makes it worth while.
The rooms in the older part of then hotel are fairly spacious and beautifully decorated in an oriental style, as are most of the public areas. The staff are very friendly and helpful and there is a 24 hour currency exchange facility.
The hotel has a number of restaurants including The Moghul Room, suberb Indian cuisine, the Khan el Khalili Restaurant (a kind of a western style brasserie) and the Oasis BBQ Grill, by the pool, which at night serves Lebanese and Egyptian starters then a mixture of freshly grilled meat and fish dishes. However, though the food was excellent the menus didn't really include a lot of Egyptian cuisine, though you could have fuul beans, falafal and tahini for breakfast
On the negative side the hotel is quite far from the centre of Cairo. Taxis are easy to come by (it cost us between 30 and 45 Egyptian Pounds, about £3.00-£4.50 to travel between the hotel and central Cairo) and the journey took between 20 to 30 minutes depending on traffic.
Overall though it was a great hotel, very luxourious, a relaxing atmosphere with excellent amenities. If you want to treat yourself I would definately recommend it.

Unique Quality: Lounging in the pool, drinking in the bar, sitting eating breakfast, the view of the Great Pyramid is never far away.
Every night we returned to the room to find a single rose and a quotation of poetry laying on the bed!

Directions: At the bottom of the Pyramids Road

The Mena House Oberoi at Gize

by written on August 24, 2002

Unique Quality: It was the old Hunting Pavillion of King Farouk. It's located exactly in front to the Pyramids plateau, and you have a view to the pyramids from your room. Impeccable service, great restaurants, and a casino (closed during Ramadan)
